It’s been a busy Spring for the team at PLIQO. Among other things, we’re working on a short-film to support our crowdfunding campaign – likely to launch in the Autumn of 2016. We think it’s a load of fun – so watch this space. We’ve also been busy polishing up this website.

On the product development front, we’ve been making excellent progress. Right now, we’re short-listing manufacturers for the all important folding garment hanger and trouser hanger that are at the heart of the PLIQO garment bags.

We are putting the finishing touches to the soft-bag design, and will shortly be going out to a range of manufacturers in the UK and overseas to get samples made, and definitive quotes for commercial production.

If all goes well, hanger and bag samples should be ready over the Summer of 2016 – in time for a final photo-shoot to support the crowdfunding campaign – and to integrate into those all important social media channels.

Next up, the team will be turning to marketing and sales. As a start up, we are ‘bootstrapping’ the project – and will be looking for cost-effective ways to catch the attention of frequent travellers and commuters who form our core market.  We’ll also be approaching a select number of retailers so we can meet the expectations of customers who want to ‘try before they buy’. More to follow on this soon.

If you’d like to know more about the PLIQO bag – please don’t hesitate to contact the team. From day one, this project has been built on feedback from potential consumers – and if you have anything you’d like to share with the team – we’d love to hear from you.
